- Upload this mybambooclient.txt file to anywhere in your SharePoint site collection. We recommend placing it in your site collection's Site Assets document library.
Create a new SharePoint Web Part Page or Wiki Page anywhere in your site collection. This will serve as your Bamboo Cloud Part® installation page.
Edit the page, and add a new Content Editor Web Part to it.
- Ensure the Content Editor Web Part points to the mybambooclient.txt file you just uploaded to SharePoint.
To point the Content Editor Web Part to the mybambooclient.txt file, ensure that its URL is entered into the "Content Link" field in the Web Part's properties and press 'OK'
- 'Save' or 'Stop Editing' the page.
- Once a form similar to the screenshot below is displayed on the page, the My Bamboo Client has been installed successfully.
